- Glossary of Modalities -
Treatment - Effective treatement for all types of acnes.
- Oriental-based systems of finger-pressure which treat
special points along acupuncture "meridians" (the
invisible channels of energy flow in the body).
Therapeutic - Special herbs and natural ingredients to hlep
bette flow of energy and therapeutic treatment.
Tissue - Releases the chronic patterns of tension in the
body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the
contracted areas, either following or going across the grain
of muscles, tendons and fascial. It is called deep tissue,
because it also focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue.
"Mud" Wrap - A popular process for natual weight
contrl and cellulite purification.
Stone Massage - This form of bodywork involves the use of
smooth, heated lava stones applied to the body using long,
flowing massage strokes. The stones become an extension
of the therapist’s hands. The deep heat softens and
relaxes tissues. The natural healing properties of the lava
stones aid in toxin removal and increased circulation. This
massage experience is like no other!
Therapy (NMT) - NMT is a form of massage in that addresses
the problem of trigger points (not to be confused with "pressure
points" used in Eastern bodywork). The thing about
trigger points is they're to be found not just in the musculoskeletal
body system, but they're also in the visceral, autonomic
part of the body. Those two systems have interesting ways
of triggering each other off. For example, many digestive
disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, manifest as
painful trigger points that refer into the mid and low back.
N.M.T. is used to address stress that manifests in the body,
lack of movement/momentum that most of us experience on
a daily basis, faulty biomechanics, lack of nutrition, and
Body Wrap - draws out negative tozins from cellulite for
weight control with natual herbs.
"Seawood" - Helps weight control and feel nourished
Release - A highly interactive stretching technique that
requires feedback from the client's body to determine the
direction, force and duration of the stretch and to facilitate
maximum relaxation of the tense tissues. Myofascial Release
recognizes that a muscle cannot be isolated from other structures
of the body. All parts of the body are covered by fascia,
a pliable connective tissue that winds itself in Saran-Wrap-like
fashion around and throughout all of the organs. Therefore,
Myofascial stretches are aimed at stretching units/areas
and are less focused on individual muscle stretching.
Relief - Relieves common office related tensions concentrating
on head, neck, shoulder, back, hand and foot.
- Location- We come to convenience of your office and home
to give relief from common tensions.
Massage - A form of bodywork for treatment of pain and injuries
caused by dysfunction in the locomotor tissues of the body
(muscle, tendon, ligament, bone, bursa, fascia, and nerve).
The term Orthopedic Massage does not denote a specific technique,
but is used to include a broad spectrum of approaches for
soft-tissue dysfunction. Orthopedic Massage may incorporate
diverse techniques such as trigger point therapy, deep transverse
friction, myofascial approaches or muscle energy techniques
to name but a few. It is not as much a technique as it is
an umbrella concept for a wide variety of treatment methods.
- 100% of human body relates to and pressures feet. It's
becoming increasingly essential to treat the foot regularly
for optimum health.
- Massage of head on the regular basis helps in several
ways. Effectively prevents hair loss and relieves from stress
with tremendous effect.
Salt" Body Polish - Removes dead skin cells using mineral
sea salts fllowed by loofah scrub.
- Shiatsu is a form of physical manipulation that was developed
in Japan in the twentieth century. Its origin comes from
ancient Chinese techniques, “do-in” and “anma”.
Do-in is very similar to yoga while Anma resembles Western
massage. These two techniques are the oldest forms of medical
treatment in the Orient. In modern times, modern manipulative
therapy like chiropractic and osteopathy, mainly imported
from America, established a new status in medicine: massage
was still considered as a more or less medical substitute.
About 1,000 years ago Chinese medicine was introduced into
Japan. At that time the Anma method was well known in the
medical field and was considered the safest and easiest
method to treat the human body. During the Edo Era (about
300 years ago), doctors in Japan were required to study
Anma in order to understand and become familiar with the
structure of the human body and its functions in terms of
meridian lines. Their training in this type of manual therapy
enabled them to accurately diagnose and administer Chinese
herbal medicine as well as locate the acupuncture points
easily for acupuncture treatments when they became independent.
Unfortunately, this ancient manipulation method was reduced
to treating only simple problems like frozen shoulders and
tight-back, and was referred to as a blind man’s profession.
Because blind people were at a great disadvantage in receiving
formal study in diagnosis and treatment, Anma gradually
became associated with pleasure and comfort. Western massage,
as an ancient form of manipulation documented in Egyptian,
Greek, and Roman history, became popular in Japan about
100 years ago when their doors were opened to the West.
However, this type of massage did not enter the mainstream
of medicine in Japan. Later, a modern method of manipulation
was imported to Japan that focused on bone structure, the
autonomic nervous system, and internal organ functioning
rather than on muscle, the lymphatic system, and blood circulation
as is the case with massage. A few traditional Anma therapists
studied this new method and combined it with their own technique
creating a new method, which was usually named after its
originator. All of these techniques were placed under the
general name “Shiatsu”. So, the term Shiatsu
actually represents a number of different methods of manipulation.
Recognition of Shiatsu in Japan as a bona-fide type of manipulation
therapy came about 80 years ago and has been popular among
the public for about 60 years. As this form of treatment
became popular, due to its simple, but effective techniques,
it was recognized as a legitimate form of therapy. Today,
the three legally recognized forms of manipulation therapy
in Japan are Anma, Western or Swedish massage, and Shiatsu.
Although some professional therapists insist that a great
deal of difference exists among these forms of treatment,
logically great differences cannot exist within one general
field, in this case, manually applied stimulation to the
human body. Of course, there are a variety of methods and
schools, but basically they are similar.
Massage - Massage therapy focusing on muscle systems relevant
to a particular sport.
Massage - A system of long strokes, kneading and friction
techniques on the more superficial layers of the muscles,
combined with active and passive movements of the join.
Massage was born in India. It consist of Assisted stretching,
Meridian-pressure point therapy, and Pranayama - an exact
system of breathing to replenish the body and strengthen
the nervous system. It is understood that the Final Relaxation
at the end of the session is profound. If you like Yoga
or stretching you'll love Thai Yoga Massage.
